Recently, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld New York and Connecticut laws banning weapons. The decision, however, struck down the New York provision barring gun owners from loading more than seven bullets in a clip and the Connecticut prohibition on the non-semiautomatic Remington 7615. Professor Timothy Lytton was quoted in Reuters Oct. 19 article “U.S. Appeals Court Upholds Core of N.Y., Connecticut Laws,” explaining how the court’s decision has helped to clarify the scope of the Second Amendment right to bear arms.
Timothy D. Lytton is a Distinguished University Professor and Professor of Law at Georgia State University College of Law with expertise in the public policy implications of tort litigation. He is the editor of Suing the Gun Industry: A Battle at the Crossroads of Gun Control and Mass Torts (2005).
